A horrific crime recently occurred in the state of WV where four people were shot dead and the shooter ended up taking his own life. My question is how does someone reach a breaking point in life and do something this severe? Our minds can be very powerful and conjure up a great story, if we let them. Our minds can even provide complete justification for the story. Now there may be some truth to the story, but our minds seem to magnify it. To control our actions, we must be aware of what we are thinking. Because our thoughts can take us for a ride. Most importantly, we need to realize that not all of our thoughts are true, even though they are a part of us. We need to ignore the negative thoughts and focus on the positive ones. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all involved in this incident and hope they quickly recover during this difficult time.
Everyone has a story to tell. What you have done, where you have been, where you want to go, etc. Have you experienced a life-changing event? Did you lose a loved one? Are you divorced? All of our decisions have brought us to this point in life. We survived and we are all okay, because I’m typing these words and you’re reading them. Our experiences made us who we are today. Maybe it’s time to write a new story and make it a good one!
